Enjoy having your own Practice Partner and Coach.
First appearing in 1990 as a continuous play video, the Practice Video DVD has been remastered (2018) to feature a menu that allows the user to navigate the contents quickly and to find, repeat, or review a lesson. The Practice DVD is the book's vital companion because it brings the book's sign drawings to life in proper motion through a video coach who signs every sentence in the book and adds facial expression, as in Total Communication. Using the book and video together enables you to sign smoothly and correctly, and to learn quickly and easily.
After first completing a book lesson, either in a class or independently, join your DVD coach, a native signer and professional sign language interpreter, and practice signing along with her to gain fluency and to enhance memory. With her hints and her encouragement, your video coach supports you every step of the way.
Review lessons whenever you choose and as often as you wish. Mute the sound and practice "reading" your coach's signing, too. This will prepare you to understand when a Deaf person signs to you. Those who rely on closed captioning can use the book's printed text in the same manner.
Included are the Manual Alphabet, numbers, and a sign-interpreted song, while periodic segments enable you to check your own progress.
